Feuilly peeks into the back room of the Musain, only to find it empty, save the tables and chairs and the floating dust that the sun, setting in the window, makes visible. Of course, his luck precisely, he thinks. He rushed straight from work in desperation to avoid being late to the meeting, only to err on the wrong side and arrive first of all. It doesn't matter so much, he thinks, taking a seat. He'll just wait for the others to arrive.

"So you say this country, thrice insulted, her second and third disrespects do not count simply because they were not the premier insult? I find them all the more outrageous for it!" He straightens his cap and nods to himself. Politics can come when they rest arrive. He reaches into his pocket and pulls out a coin. "As for the wine, if one only gains acclaim for firsts, I may as well continue my record, right?"

His first instinct is to snatch the coin back, but he doesn't. He blinks. "Heads?"

"That was smart," he says mildly, after a pause. He pulls out another coin, balancing this one on his own thumb. "Heads, you climb up and get it. Tails, I do." He flicks the coin at Adrien.

"Cheat," he says, a smile playing at the corners of his mouth. "Wine, then. I'll give you the honor of the first."

"It sounds interesting," he says, arching a skeptical eyebrow. "But as we are not gypsies, deformed bell-ringers or poets, any of us-- well, save Prouvaire-- I think we will need an author a bit more willing to content himself with chronicling the mundane. Though," he adds, "one can always assert we will not be that long. Whether he's right remains to be seen."

"I've not read much poetry," he confesses, "but I'm sure you're right. With whom did you converse about the merits of having a beak?" he asks, raising an eyebrow.

"You couldn't eat anything very large. It would make biting through hard bread, for example, very hard, or drinking from a cup or bottle. And I've never known a bird to speak. But perhaps the importance of eating oysters off the floor outweighs this?"

"'Demerits' isn't a word," he says, his tone faintly amused.

He frowns. "No, it's not."

"Well, I simply cannot allow any rumors of my workingman's illiteracy to be perpetuated," he says with half a smile. "When are you going to retrieve my coin?"

"No, that one was special." There is a pause, and he realizes he fails absolutely at sarcasm. "Yes, they're all the same."

Jehan is staring up at the ceiling, trying to find a rat or some uneven edge of wood that could've caught the coin. He holds out his hands though he's nowhere near where Courfeyrac tossed the coin, waiting for it to fall. It's got to fall, simply because the thought that he's been frequenting a gravity-defying cafe makes him nervous. "Isn't it a shame," he says, a bit behind on the conversation and only now finding the chance to speak up, "that the coin could've been used as a tip, or to buy something from those little children across the street.." He pauses, and thinks practically. "Or as money that needs to be used for the drinks, of course," he says hurriedly. He smiles, certain that his reputation for being relatively sane has been saved once again.
